I have several swollen nodes and had a biopsy done under my right arm in January. The results were negative but my Dr couldn't tell me why. Any ideas?

They're your friends: Some folks have relatively big lymph nodes and this isn't a risk for future cancer. Period. For the benign ones, usually we never find the cause. Be thankful for good health. The big nodes, including the one that was removed, are there helping you fight infections. ...Read more

My right arm pit has a bigger muscle then the left. I'm also a righty. It's the middle of the pit. I don't feel any cyst or swollen gland. Muscle?

That's the pits...: Make sure it's the muscle. Contract the chest muscle while feeling the armpit and see if it is really a muscle. Do this pushing against a wall. Then push down on a table with your elbow and feel for a muscle. Then you can compare muscle to fat. If you're a righty and do a lot of heavy work then it could just be the muscle, but if it feels like anything else, especially if lumpy, see your doctor. ...Read more
